Shrewsbury’s Theatre Severn is to stage a world premiere of a family story written 90 years ago.

Winter Holiday, which is one of a series of books written by Arthur Ransome that includes the better known Swallows And Amazons, sees a group of youngsters taking advantage of a lake freezing over to enjoy an exciting sledge race to ‘the North Pole’. 

The show is being produced by local theatre makers Love Lee Premiere Productions and will feature a cast of adults playing the youngsters. It shows at Theatre Severn from 16 to 19 February.
